Symptoms

OPMN fails to start Oracle HTTP Server with no errors reported in HTTP_Server~1 or ipm.log log files (under <ORACLE_HOME>\opmn\logs directory), after enabling Rotatelogs for Oracle HTTP Server which is running on a Windows machine, by following the the Manual page: rotatelogs documentations. 

The following configuration is added to the httpd.conf inorder to configure the Rotatelogs:

CustomLog "|<ORACLE_HOME>\Apache\Apache\bin\rotatelogs <ORACLE_HOME>\Apache\Apache\logs\access.log 43200" common 

i.e.
CustomLog "|d:\product\AS1012\Apache\Apache\bin\rotatelogs d:\product\AS1012\Apache\Apache\logs\myrotatedlogs.log 86400" common

 Where the Rotatelogs executable file is present under %Oracle_home%\Apache\Apache\bin\ directory.
